The stupefaction endemic to the West is induced by compulsion schooling. But the lassitude that is the result of an inability to bring to bear on a given situation the full weight of one’s distress using words may be overcome. One must be acquainted early with letters and combinations of letters, that the relationship with language is not abridged by “whole language” mischief; the child who is inducted into phonic code-breaking soon becomes a natural dialectical thinker, able to remain a sturdy individual in spite of the leviathan that would order him submit to the collective will as a mere resource. The tide may be turned, and in a single generation, but rules must be broken; children must be kept out of public schools.
